Since i am not getting much of an answer on the "exterior" forum here is a picture here.

Any ideas. I would hazard a guess that the wires from this enter the trailer through the floor and run under the refrigerator.

Any guesses?

I would look under the plate. I think the switch controlled that light next to it. Not sure why there was a need for a light on the front of the trailer but they may have had their family sign there.

Mystery solved. The wires from this switch run to the IGN terminal on the refrigerator which will disconnect the 12v power option for the fridge. Though not sure why located here.

Maybe so the battery will charge better when towing?

I believe this is the purpose. I will move it from here to a position inside the fridge access door. It will be most likely in the off position but available in the event that I ever need to run it with 12v.
